coolant leak!

have recently noticed that my coolant level has been dropping slightly! ran the engine up to temp to have a look for leaks, around the time when the fan kicks in i noticed that coolant was leaking out from the blanking bolt on the passenger side of the radiator! i assume its a perished rubber seal?

anybody know where i can get one? what size i need?

When was the radiator last replaced? It sounds like its the begining of the end of your current one!? You can get new radiators for £80 delivered, and it is a DIY job. As for plugs im sure any radiator shop will stock them but! i reckon your radiator needs a closer inspection.
